76 people killed as a plane carrying 81 people, including a Brazilian football team, crashed on its approach to the city of Medellin in Colombia. Police say six people survived the crash but the rest of those on board died. Poor weather conditions initially made the crash site accessible only by road, airport authorities at medellin, where the charter plane was scheduled to land, said on twitter. Reports suggest that at least two members of the team – alan ruschel and danilo – may have survived. The team was due to play in the final of the Copa Sudamericana, against medellin team Atletico Nacional. The south American football confederation said it was suspending “all activities”.
